Abstract

There has in the past, and there continues to be controversy over pediatric prosthetic fittings with myo-electric systems. Who are we fitting, the parent or the patient? At what age should we fit, and what components should we fit the patient with? Independent studies have shown positive results with early management of myoelectric fittings In keeping with the past, present and future theme of the Symposium, this paper will present Otto Bock's approach to myo-electric systems for the pediatric amputee. Topics to be discussed will include previous designs and components, as well as current systems The focus will be the unique design and manufacture of the System 2000, In the years to come, what developments can the patient look forward to from Otto Bock? What does the future hold for the System 2000 design; larger sizes, changes in electronics, new battery options?
